Farmer leader Shivkumar Kakka rolled out a big statement.

He further said, “some people went into politics and are now coming back. But the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha is still non-political, some people have defiled it and betrayed us.”
He also said, “the real SKM is still non-political nd there is no political person in it. We have thrown out people doing such politics from SKM.”
